Oh!…that this twinkle will stay,
To create an Inferno,
And last the night,
Last the years…
Oh!…that this Smile will never fade…
Cut across my streams and valleys,
Munched, crunched to reappear,
Like cuds that billies chew…
…and if the night will, it could stay…
Stay my fears and daylight’s shame…
Shame the light that scorns my look,
When I know there can’t be ‘US’.
Oh!…that this moment will dwell,
And I may, all creatures, tell
The joy in its pent up folly;
The comfort that, thus, make me wholly.
Alas! This twinkle won’t stay.
It is meant for miles away.
